Welcome to Wilgus Hall
Wilgus Hall, named after James A. Wilgus and built in 1963, accommodates approximately 230 women. Wilgus is located on the corner of Greewood Avenue and College Drive. Wilgus Hall is specifically unique because is an all-women’s residence hall. This living option offers a terrific opportunity for women to build a close community within the hall. Each floor features a kitchenette and lounge area for the convenience of its residents. Wilgus hall has a newly renovated basement with study rooms, a computer room, laundry facility, ice machine, and offers The Lynn Collins Conference Room that features a TV and a kitchen in a large meeting and dining area. The conference area is well utilized throughout the year by many organizations on campus.
Wilgus Hall sponsors an annual Women’s Weekend and Holiday Party. This event is open not only to UW-Platteville students, but to community members as well. The Holiday Party is the highlight event of Wilgus Hall that residents and the community looks forward to every year.
From the Desk of the Resident Director
I hope you got a chance to participate in Homecoming this year. If not - don't worry! There are plenty of other things happening to be a part of on campus.
Hall Council and the RA staff are going to begin planning our annual Wilgus Hall Holiday Party soon. This event happens in December and provides gifts and support to area families in need for the holiday season. If you are at all interested in helping come to Hall Council, Mondays at 9pm in the Wilgus Hall basement.
Hall Council will also be holding 'Wing Wars.' Attend meetings dressed for the theme, participate in fun games, or just attend to earn points for your wing. The wing with the most points at the end of the year will receive a catered social for their wing.
In other campus event news: keep an eye out for Pickard Hall's annual Fright Fest in late October, with all proceeds benefiting charities. Friday Night Club events are hosted by the various residence halls on most Fridays. Look for the official FNC board with posters located next to our front desk.
Thanks for stopping by to read this. Your mission this month is to perform three random acts of kindness for your fellow residents. This can be as simple as writing them a nice note to brighten their day.
Enjoy the beautiful Fall weather,
Wilgus Hall Resident Director
University of Wisconsin-Platteville
